The bright orange decor and the big wall sized pictures are striking when you go to Giraffe. The atmosphere was very warm and welcoming. It was great that the staff took the time to recommend dishes.
We ordered the nachos and asked for them to be made with less cheese and no jalapenos. They could have done with more refried beans. The guacamole was great and it was nice that it had sweetcorn in it. The red onion salsa also went well with the nachos. Seen as we were having finger food, it was nice that the staff gave us little wet wipes without us having to ask them for it.
Another item that we chose to snack on was the skin on fries. We were expecting a small bowl and were pleasantly surprised when we were presented with quite a large bowl of fries. The choices of dips that we decided to have were smokey barbecue and bloody mary ketchup. Both went well with the fries.
Giraffe have nice high window seats and they also have seating outdoors. The plastic seats can get a bit uncomfortable after a while. It would be nice if they had some cosy seats.
